Anthropoid is both a great character drama and a violent, bloody siege film.
Review by Matt CummingsAmong the chief complaints I have about Hollywood is their desire to modify a historical tale to make it either more pleasing or more dramatic. Adding new characters, or even changing the ending is like telling us the sky is really red or that Captain Kirk wears a blue shirt. Luckily, Director Sean Ellis's drama Anthropoid falls into none of the pitfalls of other Hollywood demands, turning in at once a great character drama and a terse action siege pic. Facebook.
